Stress Less with Mindfulness news, programming and other resources from MSU Extension.

Provided in collaboration with West Virginia University Extension, Stress Less with Mindfulness series introduces participants to the experience and practice of mindfulness to reduce stress. Mindfulness can be defined as paying attention in a particular way: On purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.

Research has shown that practicing mindfulness is effective in reducing stress-related symptoms such as worry, depression and physical tension, and may be helpful in managing chronic conditions such as cardiac disease and diabetes.

By offering alternative ways of relating to everyday life experiences, including thoughts, emotions, physical sensations and events, this program teaches and encourages the use of mindfulness self-care skills to help you feel better and enjoy your life more.
